true true ananth.. but on the positive side the actual tuners can perfect their skills for tuning and will have something really good to drive instead of experimenting all the time. a typical dyno would come for 12~15 lacs landed cost as someone from bangalore was telling me once. A rolling road dyno.... lets hope someone gets a dyno. could make money of it by leasing it for a few runs for a specific amount of money....

Maybe when the tuner market grows to ten times that amount, they may decide to get one of those rolling roads....Further, nothing compares with road testing for final tuning...It is often said that a 'flash' reading on the dyno will never make it into the real world...Even the big companies have expert riders on their R&D payrolls to give feedback on every aspect of tuning...but, I agree, while developing the engine there is no sustitute for a dyno...

Very much the same car which was at the Speedrun.It had no graphics whatsoever then.But it did blast the competition for sure.
Here is the Speedrun pic.




As far as the BHP figures are concerned,they are just a tentative calculation as obviously there is no Dyno to measure it up.But 200 horses or not,this is 'The Honda' for sure.

This car has all kinds of mods and you can say that almost every part of the engine is not stock.. its quick.. but if you see this driver ripping through the streets be careful as he might just ram into you.. give it time.. probably 6 months and he should be able to drive better....

Very true.Stay away from this car as Z stated.The driver is still trying to take control of the car as well as his life.

it all depends on how much power you want and what you CAN afford.mileage will not increase with a turbo.

firstly in this world there is nothing like THE BEST. you remove Rs 10000 you get some thing good , you remove Rs 20000 you get something better , you remove Rs 50000 you get some thing better but youll never get the best there always be something better. i guess the minimum for a turbo is around 45000 - 50000 rupees which car do you want it for.

and do you want it to be a street car or a drag car.

if you basically need it for street racing why dont you do a couple of other things instead of just adding a turbo.for example start of with a basic cat back exhaust system and then K&N conical performance filter and then maybe you could port and polish....the list is endless.

you always have to give some thing to take something.in this case you HAVE TO compromise on Fe to gain bhp.there will definitly be a NOTICIBLE drop in FE with a turbo.

Turbo will not necessarily decrease mileage.
